    More progress today. I added some accessory drives to the motor, I.e. Water pump, alternator, and power steering pump.IMG_20171011_164442.jpg I also stripped apart the new transfer case I got. I met a guy in Vancouver who sold me an nv3550 mated to an np231 for $300. I'm seeing that I got the better end of the deal because of how clean the inside of this transfer is.

    Anyone have any tips on how to remove the bolt that holds the front shaft in? I've tried PB and an air gun but it just clicks out. I can't figure out how to stop the chain from spinning so I can use a breaker bar.

    Can't get the nut off of the front yoke on the transfer case... Tried lots of Pb, heat and an air gun. Nothing is working. Air gun goes to 300 ft lbs. Worried I might have to run to harbor freight tomorrow. Any thought?

    I know in the past before they were apart on the ones I’ve worked on that have a yoke for front and rear I’ve put a big pipe wrench on one sides yoke and then used a impact or a big cheater bar and a buddy to break it lose.

    Just got through reading all the way through your jk6 built, some damn good work. And I'll miss the extra performance from that orange paint 🙄. I do love the blue though.

    300 is nothing. If you’re gonna get an impact from Hf get a earthquake. The rest are underpowered trash. Breaker bar and long pipe.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
